Hotair reports how Admiral John Nathman (Retired, U.S. Navy) gave a speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention to honor U.S. Veterans while using a graphic of Soviet-Russian naval warships instead of U.S. Naval warships as the background.
Lackies for the DNC putting together props with images they searched the internet for on Bing.
The Navy has a PR department that could have provided something with a phone call or an e-mail.
The problem is nobody in the Obama administration knows anybody in the Navy.
Too Funny! The ships look impressive but they should have checked the flags flying from the stern—Russian Flags!
Haha, this is too funny. I guess nobody in the DNC knows what the US flag looks like.
When its brought to their attention, the DNC will cavil its way out of the public relations faux pas by attempting to claim they were illustrating a foe of the U.S. veterans. Such an argument, howeveer, presents further pitfalls and provocations.
So sad that the American people let the partisan media lead them to elect such incompetent people into positions of leadership.
They were just honoring THEIR navy!
Pray for America
I’m wondering what kind of response Admiral John Nathman has to offer about the criticism?
I just did a quick Google search to see how long it would take me to find a real cool Picture of US naval ships.
It took me 37 seconds and it is one of a Pacific Fleet Carrier group.
I’d post the pic here but don’t know how.
I wonder how much money that guy is making and how much time he spent on this little project.
They’d have been better off letting Spongebob Squarepants give a speech.
the Obama administration only knows the homosexuals they have allowed in with repealing DADT.
everything they know of the Navy they learned in a Village People song.
How many “corpsemen” serve on them boats you think?
What a jackwad !!!
Good point about the PR (CBPO when/where I was at the time)..
After Hurricane Andrew threw us from Homestead to all around the world, I called them up and was able to get a poster (for free, not sure civvies can get it for free though) of one of our HAFB F-16s (in flight). was a beautiful poster..
Maybe they could have called one of their queer buddies that are now allowed in with the men to get one for them :/
Unreal. Check out Lucky9teen’s post in #4
“community organizer” Come on, has Chicago ever been organized??? Much less by this POS!!!
An Alinsky term, should of said... Chicago land , radical community organizer. Never let a crisis go to waste, agitation is used to obtain power.
They will not allow calm and at peace.
"The first step in community organization is community disorganization. The disruption of the present organization is the first step toward community organization. Present arrangements must be disorganized if they are to be displace by new patterns.... All change means disorganization of the old and organization of the new."
"An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent... He must create a mechanism that can drain off the underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time. Out of this mechanism, a new community organization arises....
"The job then is getting the people to move, to act, to participate; in short, to develop and harness the necessary power to effectively conflict with the prevailing patterns and change them. When those prominent in the status quo turn and label you an 'agitator' they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your functionto agitate to the point of conflict."
Searches of the Internet using “admiral john nathman” brings up a lot of results about his controversial campaign to change out the Navy’s urinals, which resulted in his being dubbed as “Potty John.” So, his speaking engagement is not his only brush with controversy.
Of course, O-Bumkiev is a COMMIE.
ships and boats
Don’t forget your sentiments about Leon Panetta, the man who said the Navy SEAL responsible for the recent book was behavior not to be tolerated.
So if I understand what you are saying
is that admiral john nathman is a confirmed JACKWAD !
One of the search results takes you to GUNSLOT blog. he has a few personal comments to make his opinion clear. Naturally, others will differ....
Mistake? Or deliberate attempt to poke veterans (and other patriots) in the eye?
Actually Soviet ships would be appropriate for the DemocRATS, as they aspire to make us a marxist state.
Almost seems like the ‘pubs had a mole putting together the materials used at the DNC presentation.
Seems like most have overlooked this possibility. Or maybe an old navy chief or other patriot pulling a fast one on the DNCPC crowd to expose them as the fools they are. Regardless, someone's probably gonna get a dressing down but it may be worth it to 'em.
Someone must be reading Breitbart and Freeerepublic over at the DNC:

Like their empty chair leader, the DNC chose to blame someone else for using the graphic of the Soviet navy to honor the U.S. veterans. The concept of responsibility and authority seems to elude them as usual. Otherwise, they would have instantly realizeed they cannot blame the vendor without simultaneously implicating themselves in the failure to review and approve the images to be used before they were utilizeed and screeened. Surely a retired U.S. Navy Admiral could remind the DNC about the meaning of command responsibiilty, or not when it comes to the DNC?
Kudos to Rob Barker and the Navy Times. They demonstrate that not everyone is asleep on the watch.
Hey, don’t you know that a warship is a warship is a warship and there’s not a lot of difference between a carrier, battleship, cruiser, destroyer, frigate, or submarine. That’s according to the Donkeys at the DNC.
Someone at work asked me if I was watching the DNC....I told him that if I wanted to watch whiny children dressed as adults simper for votes I would watch Honey Boo Boo instead. He hasnt talked to me since.
“Haha, this is too funny. I guess nobody in the DNC knows what the US flag looks like.”
Well, to be fair they are usually burned to ashes when they see them.
